The End

I have written the above two words in a manuscript.

I have titled the story: Build Me a Gazebo.

The story includes a bit of suspense; a collection of romantic interludes; an imagination’s fill of erotica and a twist by Satan.

“They” do not live happily ever after.

Now, to rewrite it...this time writing it well.

Gotta be the shortest query letter I've ever seen.
If I were an editor, I'd twig.

I say, "Go for it!" "They" do not always end happily ever after, after all!

~laughing~ You may not think "wonderful", Bernita, when you get the ocassional email from me that says: "Okay, Dear Gal, I'm stuck! What the "F" do I do about this?"

Umm...whatever "I'd twig" means?

This is a "real-life" novel, Donnetta Lee. Not a fantasy novel. Good to see you.

Thank you, Spyscribbler. I intend to make the rewrite fun. Even if it is never accepted for publication, it will have been worth the long and lonely hours to me. I will be able to say to myself, "You have written your book".

Uh, in plain American,when you go "witching" for water, there is this "twig" feel in the divining rod in your hand.
Now if editors were water...

Make the rewrites fun, Erik, and even if... (I'm thinking positive here!), we still want to read your book!

And the next book, and the next book, and the next! So, get busy, mister!
